In 2008 a 12 year old girl took a walk with her dad on the Arch Cape beach in Oregon when she stumbled upon what turned out to be one of two cannons found that day from the USS Shark which wrecked at the Columbia River bar in 1846.
They were sent to Texas A&M for several years to be cleaned up and restored. This rendering was part of the effort to allow the Columbia River Maritime Museum in Astoria to display the cannons, a few miles from where they had been separated from the Shark so many years ago.
Using photo references and architectural plans I drew myself, I built a 3D computer model and then used Photoshop to illustrate the views. I kept the style semi-realistic, but somewhat soft.
